On the seventh day of April, my Wordle gave me… a new game to solve! You’ll find today’s Wordle answer at the bottom of this post, but if you want to try and work it out yourself first, you’ll find a few clues as well as general Wordle tips, strategies, and info as you make your way down.
Created by engineer Josh Wardle as a gift for his partner, and later bought by the New York Times in a seven-figure deal, Wordle has become a daily habit for thousands of people and inspired countless clones and variations on the basic guessing-game format.
Try the diabolically hard Absurdle, the maddeningly fun music game Heardle, the several-at-once variants like Dordle and Quordle and so on (and put them all together to beat the 31-word Grand Slam) — or find new strategies with less stress by watching people play on TikTok.
Yesterday’s Wordle: Here’s the April 6 Wordle in case you’re looking for it. We do this every day.
What’s the best Wordle starting word?
Generally, you want to lock in or rule out at least two of the vowels, as well as a couple more common letters. We’ve got plenty of ideas for you to test out.
Why are there two different Wordle answers some days?
Some people found there were two different possible Wordle answers again last week. Here’s why.
Is Wordle getting harder? It feels like it’s harder lately!
Where can I play previous Wordles?
Here’s a subtle hint for today’s Wordle answer:
Both the first three letters and the last three letters are very common words in their own right.
Does today’s Wordle answer have a double letter?
Not today! Five letters, all appearing once.
Today’s Wordle is a 5-letter word that ends with…
This is a big one! Today’s answer ends in a Y. Hope that helps before we tell you…
What’s the answer to Wordle today?
OK, OK, here it is.
Unless you make a habit of sneaking a Y into your early guesses, this might have taken a couple of go. Did I guess MORAY before I remembered that FORAY is also a word? Yes. Yes, I did. If you’re unfamiliar with this one, that’s understandable — it’s a tad less common than some of the recent answers. It means an attack or a venturing forth, and can be used as a verb or a noun.
Hope these clues helped nudge you toward the answer! If not, there’s always tomorrow.
